2 things i could see it doing, less oil from the bearings on the shoes and less heat. i use them sometimes when i run carbon shoes.

Clutch bearings last longer for one. All the material that comes of the clutch shoes doesn't stay in the bell.

Ofna silver shoes last along time I'm using 1.0 or 1.1 springs.
